Green Sports Africa aims to bridge the gap between talent and opportunity in the African football scene.
We believe that the lack of proper structures in the continent to promote, nurture and develop talent in youth football should not be left untapped. For this reason we are building a foundation that will provide this platform where there has been none.
So far, we have been doing this in a multi pronged approach i.e. through our academy, tournaments and league, to ensure we solve the problem from all angles.
These services are only the first step to bridging the gap. In each of our services, our internal scouting team conducts a careful selection process to find outstanding players in each position. These players make up The Green XI, the best team per age category for a specific period of the year.
The Green XI is then invited to participate in our trials — a platform where they play in a professional match setting against a worthy opponent — in the presence of local and international scouts. It is here that players get that chance that is otherwise lacking in our football culture as once a local or international scout spots their talent, they will get a direct opportunity to kickstart their professional football career.
